Airline History Museum

The Airline History Museum is located at the Kansas City Downtown Airport in Kansas City, Missouri, USA.

It was originally known the "Save a Connie Foundation" and is still incorporated under that name. It was founded by former TWA employees.

The group highlights commercial aviation in the propeller age.

This group maintains three aircraft, one of which is in flying condition. They are:

1.) A Lockheed Super G Constellation, known as "Star of America,"
2.) A Martin 404, and
3.) A Douglas DC-3, still undergoing restoration.

The Martin 404 has considerable structure corrosion and will probably not fly again.

The DC-3 is currently being made airworthy. It will require an engine overhaul before it can be certified.

The Super Constellation ("Super-Connie") is in flying condition but has not flown to any air shows for several seasons.
